Event Details

The Event:

When the quintessential dish of Spain and culinary all-stars from across the country and Mexico come together, you know it’s time for the return of the 10th Annual Corona Paella Challenge hosted by Chef Johnny Hernandez, benefitting Kitchen Campus.

This March 24, join fellow epicureans for a beautiful afternoon featuring distinguished chefs from San Antonio, across the United States and Mexico, live entertainment, wines from Spain, and sangria on the grounds of Mission County Park. Watch as chefs go head-to-head in a competition to create the most impressive and tasty paella dishes cooked right before your eyes. Local high school teams will also compete in the HEB High School Paella Challenge for an opportunity to win a trip to the Culinary Institute of America in New York City! All  proceeds will benefit Kitchen Campus programming.

About Kitchen Campus:

Kitchen Campus is a non-profit organization established in 2014 by Chef Johnny Hernandez. The organization’s mission is to connect today’s youth to culinary opportunities through education and advocacy.

Kitchen Campus is an out-of-school program that provides students from high school with an opportunity to learn about food, nutrition, and cooking while exploring careers in the culinary industry. Activities include hands-on cooking classes, lectures, field trips, and guest chef workshops. Kitchen Campus works on behalf of local students who may not otherwise have the funds, access to resources, or the mentors necessary to help guide them to financial success through the culinary arts.

The vision of Kitchen Campus is financial success through culinary arts. Program graduates will thrive—prepared to succeed with basic cooking skills and nutrition education, knowledge of the food industry, and leadership experience that empowers them to make a difference in their community. 

Ticket Information:

The ticket price is ALL-INCLUSIVE - it includes entry into the event, sampling of amazing Paella and other tasty bites from the chefs, as well as beverages (Beer, Wine, Sangria, Sodas & Water) and the entertainment for the day.

***Children 6 years of age and younger get free admission and do not require a ticket.***
